Arenas (<15,000)

Well we have a thread for indoor arenas and halls larger than 15,000. But I have always loved the small suburban indoor arenas(especially around the 7,000 - 10,000 capacity range)

eg. for minor league american sports / indoor sports in other countries / other events. I wonder if anybody else is also a fan of the small "cosey" indoor arenas around the world and would be good enough to show us their favourites

I'll start with my three favorites.

The Williams Arena in Minnesota also referred to as the barn for obvious reasons. Built in 1928 and still in use today with a 14,000 capacity. Home of the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Notice the raised court. A lot like the raised pitches at some English soccer stadiums.




Then there's Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. Also built in 1928 seating 11,000. Also with a raised floor.



Lastly, New Castle Fieldhouse in Indiana. With seating for 9,000 it's the largest high school gym in the world.

The Bank of Kentucky Center at Northern Kentucky University has a capacity of around 9,000 for basketball.




Can't find a good overall view of the facility since it just opened.

Holstenhalle, Neumünster (3,500/4,000 with additional seats like on the photo)





There are plans for a 40 million € renovation which should start in 2010. The capacity would be increased to 4,500/5,000 seats (I don´t know if there will be the possibility to install temporary seats like now)

Those are some great sites, thanks!

And here's a similar site about ice hockey arenas all over Europe, ranging from tiny barns with a capacity of a few hundred to the largest indoor hockey arenas in Europe. Well worth checking out for those interested in European indoor arenas.
